Lodging & Meals


Anderson Ranch closely follows guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Colorado and the Pitkin County Health Department. In order to operate safely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson Ranch has made significant modifications to our housing and meal offerings for Summer 2021. We have established a Business Safety Plan with added layers of precaution that prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, students, faculty and guests while continuing to provide you with the Anderson Ranch experience that you know and enjoy.

Please be aware that health orders could be extended, amended or changed as needed to protect public health, which may impact Anderson Ranch’s Housing and Meals offerings and protocol.

Summer 2021 Housing Options

Housing offerings are very limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you reserve housing, the better your chance of receiving your preferred option. Anderson Ranch is offering two single-occupancy housing options for Summer 2021. Shared housing options will not be available. For the safety of the Anderson Ranch community, Ranch-provided housing is only available to students who are attending workshops. Another major change for summer 2021 is that meals are purchased separately from Ranch-provided housing. For more information please see The Ranch Café section below.

Rates below reflect six nights of accommodations. A sales and lodging tax of 12.8% will be added at the time of registration.

The Ranch Café

Anderson Ranch has made some exciting new changes in the Ranch Café! Led by Director of Culinary Arts and Operations, David Wang, the Ranch Café now offers a creative globally inspired menu, premium coffees and teas, and a delicious and convenient Grab & Go program. You’ll find the Café a peaceful and inspirational environment to relax with fellow community members and artists from all over the world.

During the summer the Café serves three meals a day, Monday through Friday, as well as dinner on Sunday and a continental breakfast on Saturday. All food preparation is overseen by ServSafe-certified employees. The Café has comfortable indoor and outdoor seating that is arranged in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. Meals may be ordered to go for individuals who would like to take out and dine in other areas of campus. We will have areas across campus set aside for additional well-spaced dining.

Ranch Café Gift Cards

For your convenience, Ranch Café Gift Cards are available in the amounts of $100, $200 and $300 and will be distributed in the form of a QR code, which is scanned from your phone at check out and can also be used online to place an order. Please make your selection carefully as the Ranch is unable to refund unused portions of gift cards and they expire at the end of each calendar year. Gift cards valued at $300 are a good choice for students who are eating all their meals at the Ranch during the week. For individuals who are only dining in the Café for some of their meals, the $100 or $200 gift card may be a better choice.

Ranch Café Gift Cards can be purchased during registration, online or in person in the Café once you have arrived on campus. Gift cards are subject to a sales tax of 10.4% except when purchased in advance as a package with housing (in which case meals are exempt from the 10.4% sales tax). All offerings are also available for purchase à la carte in the Ranch Café or online through the Café’s new online ordering system. Weekly menus are posted each Sunday during the summer.
